A biostratigraphically complete Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary was recovered during Ocean Drilling Program Leg 121. The boundary, cored in ODP Hole 752B on Broken Ridge, is the most expanded deep-sea section yet recovered by ODP/DSDP. The initial Danian subzone, CP la, spans nearly 5 m and the underlying uppermost Maestrichtian Nephrolithus frequens Zone extends 50 m below the boundary. The paleolatitude of Broken Ridge at Cretaceous/Tertiary time is estimated at 50°-55°S which includes this site among the...
